Rendering: 2013 BMW 5 Series Facelift – BMW BLOG
In their latest issue, German magazine Autobild previews the upcoming BMW 5 Series Facelift. Several prototypes have been spied in the past few months, all wearing very light camo that hide the fine details behind this mild life cycle impulse.
The rendering below gives us a a look at new Air Curtains with chrome inserts, slightly redesigned headlights and a small update to the kidney grille.
Some changes will also apply to the side mirrors which most likely will get turn signal indicators.
Inside, the changes are minimal as well. Even the multi-functional instrument display as debuted by the 7 Series facelift was available starting with July 2012 production.
The entry-level model will be the 518d powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged diesel unit producing 140 horsepower. At the high-end of the scale we will see the BMW 550i with its V8 TwinTurbo engine.
The facelift updates will apply to touring and Gran Turismo models as well, and BMW plans to introduce the facelifted models in the summer of 2013.
